I'm not sure if it's just my connection, but if there are supposed to be images posted, I can't view them.
Try it again now - I fiddled with the permissions a bit.
Still no luck.

I can see them- they’re on imgur, which can be blocked by some places.
I'm having the same problem, yet have no trouble accessing imgur.

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The prime of the Kennedy dynasty was a little before my time, but the portrait looked vaguely Kennedy-esque and I figured it would have to be Robert instead of John. Unfortunately I couldn't come up with his role in the government. Had a major "of course" moment on the reveal so the knowledge was th...

Re: Monday, March 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought they were reversing Vicki for omitting "Academy of" from her response. Seems like a bigger omission than the trailing s. Coin flip on whether they were looking for The Invisible Man or Invisible Man. I really need to nail those down. Pre-called Beowulf, went immediately to the correct resp...

So happy to see the reveals have not started yet, but if my submission is too late for any reason there will be no hard feelings.

Re: Monday, March 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ugh - halfway through the FJ clue I decided on the TSA and never looked elsewhere, despite the number of employees sounding unusually high. Had a real "Duh!" moment on the reveal. I hate it when I do that.

Re: HQ Trivia

Diving into HQ Trivia: The toughest rounds, the best time to play and how some users beat the odds I can't tell if this is supposed to be comedy or not.

Re: Friday, March 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Started with minotaur but the word "fawn" in the clue sounded like the writers were trying to lead me somewhere else. Settled on satyr, although I'm not aware of them being known as people-eaters. My main familiarity with Cerberus comes from Milton and Paradise Lost, and he/it is most definitely not...

As I pre-called potential European rivers on category reveal, I reflected that my knowledge of the paths and endpoints of said rivers is woefully lacking. Chalk up another one for Switzerland, which it turns out the Danube does not touch.

Re: Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I guess this episode settles the question of whether the show would accept a response that is already in the form of a question. Not only a whole category, but Alex even made a point of saying they don't need to "double question" (my words) the response. A precedent has been set.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), March 8, 2018

Any time they lob a softball first question like that and give me 14 seconds of idle time is a nice boost for confidence. Looks like 38 or so, depending on whether they accept the philosophical method instead of the philosopher himself. Should have been low-40s. Had three answers come to me just as ...

38, from the video. I imagine I would have missed a few more under the pressure of doing it "for real".

I don't think of buckets as cylindrical, since most buckets I've seen taper slightly (like, for instance, KFC buckets).
Yep, same here.

Re: TD 370 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 2xx (NOW OPEN, ACTUAL PRIZE!)

Okay, since my beating around the bush apparently used a circle with too large a circumference, I will just come out and ask:

For 202 are you looking for a current cabinet department or are those defunct, merged or renamed also fair game?

Judges, for word preceding "bliss", connubial instead of conjugal? Well, that was stupid. WNEM did yet another Time-Life infomercial with absolutely no announcement, and as usual they're ignoring all the complaints on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Actually, they announced it at the end of Friday...

Re: TD 370 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 2xx (NOW OPEN, ACTUAL PRIZE!)

I can't think of how to phrase this without giving too much away and an IM could potentially give me an unfair advantage. For 202, would I (theoretically) be good with an answer of Department of Iceboxes and Buggy Whips?

Laura reminds me of someone. It was a bit distracting at first. I'm not sure who, but I'm open to suggestions.
My immediate thought when I saw her was Saoirse Ronan, recently in the movie Ladybird.
